Balance & Strength working through parallel | Technique Tuesday Tip

As dancers, we tend to work our turnout 90% of the time which causes us to lose strength, flexibility, and stability when working in a parallel position. Try this exercise to help gain that strength and work on your balance while remaining in a parallel position with square hips.

Start by standing with your left foot centered on the half-disc and your right leg in parallel passé. Slowly extend your right leg in front of you then return to passé and extend into arabesque while keeping hips as square as possible. Repeat for 10 reps before trying this on your other side.
